Dear Friends of Parkwood Community,
As the extraordinary year of 2020 draws to a close, we celebrate Christmas in a world where everything has changed. It has been a year like no other – where masks and hand sanitizer are essential items; meeting with family and friends is restricted; and there is a risk of contracting COVID wherever we go.
Despite these challenges, the spirit of kindness and gratitude infuse our Parkwood Community. Many people have offered gifts and encouragement to our residents, families, and team members in these difficult months. Students from neighborhood schools took their time to send uplifting handwritten cards. These blessings are reminders of how thankful we are for the generosity and care of our wonderful community.
Each year, Parkwood strives to walk in partnership with residents and families to build a community that balances a happy and welcoming home environment with the excellence in clinical care that residents require. This year, we invite you to consider donating to Parkwood for initiatives in 2021. As always, our goal remains to provide excellence in care through our values of faith, kindness, trust, excellence, and accountability.
We look forward to a New Year where we will return to a gathering for fellowship, recreation programming, and special events. Parkwood is not the same without our friends, our volunteers, and all our community at large. We miss you!
Parkwood and its team members wish you and your loved one’s health and happiness this Christmas season and in the New Year.
With sincere gratitude,
Christine Normandeau, Executive Director
